3.0.5

Upgrading from earlier version -- problem

We have an EXTENSIVE system using AW. What we do in the first cell of our grid is to put an HTML link. This worked fine previously as long as it was formatted as an <a href> link.

Now I am trying the 2.5.5 trial and I cannot seem to make it NOT show the full text (i.e. Instead of the link, it shows "<a href='<whatever>'>Name</a>").

How do I make it show the link correctly again. I do NOT want to re-write an entire system!

Also, when I return 100 records from an AJAX call, the new AW only shows about 5 records at a time until I start to scroll down and then it gives me a few more at a time.

How do I get it to show ALL of the records I returned?

Thanks in advance!

Additional info:

I've tried using &quot; instead of quotemarks in the link. I've tried single quotes (apostrophes). I've tried escaping with a backslash on both these types.

All have simply given me the literal text of that link. Since we sometimes use other types of grids, I cannot change this method without a total re-write.

HELP!!!

Is your cell format set to html?

>>Is your cell format set to html?

That was it. I don't understand... is this something that is printed in a manual here somewhere and I'm not finding it? It seems like everything is spread around but nothing in one comprehensive Developers' Guide somewhere.

ANYWAY...

My second question is also very important to me:

When I return 100 records from an AJAX call, the new AW only shows about 5 records at a time until I start to scroll down and then it gives me a few more at a time.

How do I get it to show ALL of the records I returned? I *** KNOW *** my users won't understand that they need to keep scrolling down. Is there something in my call that is causing it to only display a few at a time?

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure about your second question. Is your grid in virtual mode?

Perhaps if you put up an example on the web or post some code, someone might be able to answer you.

Thanks for your help on this. I tried what you suggested, but it didn't work.

I'm going to start a new thread on this and will post my code as well.

Thanks for being willing to help!

Never mind my last post, you were right!

In getting ready to document the code for the new thread, I realized I had put the code you had suggested in the wrong place in the program and now it works!

Thanks for your help!
